* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: The multiplayer bots' idea of helping with cannons and ballistae involves ignoring anything else going on to help build(like other players attacking you), attacking any walls you put up to keep OTHER bots/players away, getting in the last tap to steal the NonCombatEXP from building the thing and then taking a seat on it and either doing nothing or not shooting where you intended... and there's no way to force a friendly bot off a tactical weapon.* BrokenBase: Many examples amongst the community.

* AnimationAgeGhetto: The artstyle and the fact that body proportions are eschewed augments this.

**Honorable mention goes to the [[WeaponizedLandmark Bird Cannon]]. It's huge, [[PowerSource can only be controlled by whoever currently holds the middle tower]], can only be found in two maps, and has a ludicrously long charge time that only charges when manned. These factors make it seem balanced for a {{BFG}}, but it locks on to whatever players are targeted by it, and on the maps it is featured on, it can pick on players who are helpless due to being launched by the nearby jump pads. Also, it can earn guaranteed and reliable kills in only two shots locked on to the players (directly), but this is also mitigated by the shots having Smash Effect, which can render survival against this or even taking out its {{Power Source}} a {{Luck Based Mission}} with even a fairly competent team.

** Lagging, whether it is intentional or not, is the ire of the community. For those with bad internet connections, the naturally bad connections of this game along with other problems can get players hated by the fanbase on the same level as intentional lag. The unintentionally lagging defendants have no choice but try to defend themselves in vain. Supporters claim that they have nothing to do about it, while the people against it claim otherwise - by getting a better router.

*** It's justified by its apparent effects. Anyone who claims another player to be a lagger claims to see them randomly and erratically teleport all over the playing field, his or her attacks to them not registering, and so on.

* FakeBalance[=/=]GameBreaker: On paper, Happy Wars's three player classes are relatively balanced. Outside of class specific abilities, they all have access to the same buffs and equipment are comparable to each other [[SquishyWizard (other than Mages having less defense and a lack of shield)]]. However, outside of the Cleric's superior building capabilities and team support, one could argue that the [[GameBreaker Warrior is the go-to class for all other team needs]].

* BrokenBase: Many examples amongst the community.
** [[FanNickname Backdooring/castle rushing/etc. (depends on what community you are from).]] Regardless the name given to it, the terms refer to the practice of [[EasyLevelTrick using an alternative route within a map]] to [[SpeedRun quickly reach and demolish an enemy's defenses for an easy win.]] The division comes between its GameBreaker elements. Some players claim it is a legitimate tactic, while others complain about it being a cheap tactic that a player can use in place of "legitimately" advancing toward every castle. Even then, the advocates of this tactic claim that the opposing side has no just argument because they "are not playing enough defense," among other things.



* EasyLevelTrick: Several maps in the game are designed to where you and a small group can sneak along a side route completely undetected and [[SpeedRun quickly breach the enemy castle]] if you or another member of your group are running a Cleric. Numerous Website/YouTube videos showcase this tactic.



* {{Scrub}}: Quite a large portion of the playerbase is rather upset that many players choose to rush the enemy castle rather than take the control towers one by one.
